germany. one of the images germany has natural boundaries to the north and south with the alps and further burden the east and the west is flat plains, so germany had a war over the century with germany or france or that area and poland and because germany was a continental power sandwiched between the maritime europe on one hand and the heartland towards the other it was always problematic which we it would go and how it would develop. i can across this book by accident in early 1989. the berlin fall with -- berlin wall would fall but november. it had occurred to me after reading this book and other books that the berlin wall or the dividing line between eastern and western germany was one. creation of german history that would reinvested soften different territory always in the future so today we have a united germany that trades immensely with poland and has had a wretch most wall -- to approach what and where the european union and the nato or meant to keep russia out and the germans down now they are triumphant economically. germany may not have the solution to every economic problem
to this, ambassador burt was the u.s. ambassador to the federal republic of germany from 85-89, and before that worked in the state department as assistant secretary of state for european and canadian affairs and 83-85. and before that was the direct of political military affairs in the department of state. so he, along with his colleagues, has a long and eminent involvement of these issues but and finally last but not least, ambassador matlock, known to many of us, career ambassador, he's been holding a series of academic posts. i'm not going to list them all, since 1981, 91, excuse me. but during his 35 years in the american foreign service, 1956-91, he served as ambassador to the soviet union from 1987-1991, a special assistant to the president for national security affairs, and senior director for european and soviet affairs on the national security staff from 83-86. and as ambassador to czechoslovakia from 81-83. i will not go over the rest of his eminent and long career in the interest of time, but i just did want to give you a brief recap of all three of them. and, of course, marvin
the soviet troupes out of eastern europe. going to let nato take over germany. unite germany and nato can have their germany as long as nato doesn't go further. these kinds of things are in the air. what does bush do? tianimen square happens, he suspended relations, but behind the scenes does business as usual with china. he goes into panama, in december '89 -- never forgot that because i had -- born on the 4th of july was opening that day, and the american people loved it. they backed the invasion. it was our backyard, it was a war on drugs and that was new issue now. communist had been forgotten. noriega was the new stalin, and then a year later, we had this iraq 1, and that's another untold story. iraq 1 was really depressing when you go into all the false intelligence and the doctoring of the photos. do you want to tell us about that? it breaks my heart personally, and as a veteran of the vietnam war, i see the next ten years we drift. we don't take advantage of the possibles with the soviet union, to keep it stable. we privatize with russia and then by the time the bush 43 comes in,
.s., the netherlands, and germany providing the weapons but the alliance stressed the move was defensive. >> the deployment of patriot missiles will serve as an effective deterrent and that way, diaz with the situation along the syrian-turkish border. >> russia is the one fly in the right man. the foreign minister said he would not block the move. a sign an old ally may be losing patience with president assaad. they hope deploying missiles will help stabilize tensions but the bigger concern is what is happening inside syria itself. specifically, what the regime might do with its stockpile of chemical weapons. syria has used much of its considerable arsenal to crush the rebellion. hidden from view it is believed to have developed a chemical weapons program and there are reports of activity, prompting this uncompromising western message. >> we are concerned for the same reason the united states has. we have sent our own clear, private message directly to them about the serious consequences that would follow from the use of such weapons. >> those consequences are not been spelled out and sy
. >> the american defense secretary announcing that the u.s. was joining germany and benevolence in providing patriot missiles. does this risk raising the stakes? >> i see these as predominantly a defensive move. i think the assad regime knows it is a defensive move. they can theoretically be used to shoot down planes, this is probably not going to happen. they are far too expensive to use for that purpose. >> syria's most important ally has already responded, saying that the american missile deployment creates extra tension and is not help for a diplomatic solution. it does put the spotlight again on the volatile a syrian-turkish border. an area given support to the rebels. the patriot missile sites have not been disclosed. all will be under nato command and control. >> significant elements in syria. four days, they had been celebrating in p'yongyang after a successful missile launch. today was the biggest display yet. hundreds of thousands were summoned to show their enthusiasm to the world. the launch came just 8 months after a similar attempt ended in failure. we report now from seoul. >>
of germany from '85 to '89 and before that worked as a state department as assistant secretary of state for european and can nad yain affairs. and before that was the drecker of political military affairs in the department of state. so he along with his colleagues has a long and imminent involvement in the issues. and finally, left side but not least, ambassador mat lock known to many of us retired foreign service officer. he's been holding a series of academic posts. i'm not going to list them all since '91. during the 35 years in the foreign service he served as ambassador to the soviet union from 1978 to 1991 as special assistant to the president for national security affairs, and senior directer for european and sowf yet affairs on the national security staff from '83 to '86. as ambassador of czech from '81 to '83. i won't go over the imminent and long career in the interest of time. i wanted to give you a brief recap for all three of them. of course, marvin, who is the edward r murrow professor at harvard kennedy school of government, and contributing news analysts for npr and fox
indeployment of the patriot missile batteries from u.s., germany and netherlands. this would serve to be a pretty firm warning to the flailing assad regime to mess with nato member, turkey. if you talk to some of most vocal critics, though of the proposal, and that would be the russians who are in brussels at that nato meet and who were here, putin in istanbul, meeting with turkish leadership yesterday, they argue further militarizing this long border will only serve to escalate tensions. >> all right. ivan, thanks so much. ivan watson in istanbul, who is being down near that bordertown that has been the subject of shelling. moving on. before the scandal broke, many people could have seen former cia director david patreaus running for office. and now there is news that he was indeed approached. the way he was approached may surprise you. >>> also -- israel standing firm on its decision to go forward with construction of new settlements in the west bank and east jerusalem. hear what that might mean for the middle east peace process if that even exists. and when you switch from anoth
on its last leg now? >> that's a good question. these are american units coming from places like germany and netherlands. i was surprised it might take the end of january. that's reason i said it was symbolic saying we're sporting them. who knows what will happen in syria over the next couple weeks or months or even before these batteries are in place. there could be certainly some problems due to the lack, this vulnerability they think is developing for turkish airspace and turkish sovereignty. adam: turkey is an ally. they are a member of nato. they have a strong army. syria, on the other hand, as we said, the rebels are aligned with islamic powers that may not be friendly to the united states. it sure looks as if this is, at least gives a open door, a foot, not a toe into turkey should we need to have a greater force on the border with syria. wouldn't that be a logical conclusion? >> that is something to think about but i don't think we're going there. i don't think this association is going there. adam, they have 20 months to do something. they have done basically nothing. they recen
war. you don't see france going to war with germany or russia with poland. it used to happen all the time, but it's not happening. the best example of all was just a couple of weeks ago when gaza was fighting -- the palestinians were fighting with the israelis, and they lobbed a couple of missiles into tel aviv. i'm sure that both people on both sides could see that the day was coming that they'd be lobbing missiles into jerusalem. and this is what both the christian the jewish religion began there, and it's the holy land. it's some of the greatest tourist attractions in the world. people want to come from all overed world to see it, but not when a war is going on. they realized within a week of war they had made a terrible mistake to go to war. even though it's better to grumble at each other, but not to be shooting at each other and causing damage and wrecking the economy and upsetting people all over the world because these pictures, you have the bbc and cnn there having the pictures of the grandmothers and grandfathers and little children lined up on the street in front of ho

pressure appears to be mounting on bashar al-asaad as the u.s., germany and th and the netherlands will be sending troops and weapons. >> as part of the absolute unity that we all have on this issue, we have sent an unmistakable message that this would cross a red line. and those responsible would be held to account. >> this comes as president assad may be looking for a way out as this pressure is mounting. we understand he sent an envoy to latin america seeking asylum from countries such as cuba, venezuela or ecuador. his deputy foreign minister denies that claim. syrian rebels are ming closer and closer to damascus. the airport outside of damascus remains to be closed. there are some flights going in and out of there. the international community is no longer flying in and out. we are hearing more and more records of fighting near damascus getting closer to the presidential palace. all this appears to be mounting pressure on the assad regime. anybody predicting the assad regime will fall anytime soon, it's a theory that has been floated for several years and it hasn't come to be.

that is what is going to kill us, the absolute numbers. germany can afford to bailout greece. nobody can afford to bailout the united states, and i would agree actually with bill archer that i think he understated. if you take the total debt situation, you're talking about just shy of three-quarters of a million dollars for the -- per american family. so you get a cup of coffee from a waitress in the diner, think of loading three-quarters of a million dollars of debt on to her shoulders for what? for what? does nothing to show for. lou: her children and their children that will be paying a large measure of that. great to have you with us. making spirits bright. and after america with one of the ugliest pictures of an american cadaver toe tag to. >> doom and the oven is the into debt. lou: at least some balance here. you know how much are president loves balance. great to have you with this. up next, the fiscal cliff. it is hung up on tax for the rich. not really. we will tell you why those taxes are going up regardless of the deal. tomorrow, former u.s. ambassador to the united nations, moody's
